be democrats and republicans. let's be real. what we need is for you to be better. >> we're looking at icy conditig ? >> nothing like this morning. but there will be patches and i can't emphasize enough, the sidewalks, drive ways and let's start outside. if you're an early commuter and it's dark when you come in, use your low beams and allow extra time. look at the temperatures this is a live shot of the capital. visibility is not terribly low every where, but it will be in the next few hours. temperatures, critical. 32 in arlington, 35 downtown, not too bad, but 32 in great falls. satellite picture and radar, the good news, this is not an organized storm. we're not looking at much prescription, and should be out of here in the early part, if not
before the morning xhutd tomorrow. in the meantime -- commute tomorrow. in the meantime we have patches and you can access this on our website www.wusa9.com and we had rain on the west side of 95 and we'll zoom up to 70 where you see the pink. this is a mixture so you have a mixture of freezing rain around clarksburg and unlike yesterday, i don't think we'll see snow or sleet. it will be rain or freezing rain. let's go back to the compudense fog early tomorrow, and advisory goes until 7:00 a.m. slick spots are also possible tomorrow, bridges and overpasses and overpasses. now our 9 future cast we see clouds every where by about 12:15 on wednesday, but the good news is, all the prescription will be
gone by early morning. in fact, by afternoon we'll see breaks in the clouds, really a pretty nice day for mid to late january, and we'll be snowing again tomorrow night and tomorrow afternoon west of the divide out towards garrett county and oakland. get into thursday, guess what, clouds come back. they'll be another storm quickly on the heels as we get into thursday night and friday. all right, for overnight. light rain, some freezing rain north and west. lows 28 to 32 with light winds. tomorrow morning, early shower possibly, early dense fog, and early black ice possible. by afternoon we salvage a pretty nice day. partly cloudy highs near 45, that's above average and winds 15 to 15. so -- 10 to 15. all right, the next three days. partly cloudy tomorrow, colder on thursday clouds come in,
there's the snow developing thursday night into friday morning. 38 on thursday, 35 on friday. going to be a huge storm? probably not. significant storm with accumulating snow? probably. next seven days. after that we really get cold. 37 on sunday, and more snow on monday and tuesday. it's light snow at this point, and maybe light snow changing to a mix on tuesday with temperatures back in the upper 30s. >> a lot of flakes there, thoug. >> a lot of flakes. we thought that they were really good? >> we thought . >> we didn't know. >> we e a local team in the ncaa tournament this year. georgetown on the ropes again. same story for the caps against the flyers. sports coming up next.

the 23rd ranked team in the nation. and i think that derek and his old balling buddies could beat rutgers. i think so. 3 minutes to go. watch robinson there. hall up by 6, but georgetown looked like they were in trouble and got the ball to julian that was paying rent in the pifot because he was living there. vot because he was living there. jordan for the tie, yes! no. his foot was on the line. 16th ranked ladies left their defense up on the hill. she had 22 points, and they fall 80-58. all right. time for you to pick this week's game of the week.
